Grateful for American democracy

Some remarkable things have recently happened in the U.S.

Record-setting millions of voters, from both political parties, participated in the presidential election, in spite of the pandemic.

Although some people feared that the country was headed toward armed conflict over the presidential election, Election Day seemed quiet, and there were apparently few or no instances of open-carry weapons at polling stations.

In Michigan and Georgia, some state and local election officials and state legislators, when under apparent pressure to subvert the election, said they would follow the law and respect lawful election procedures, even when their personal sympathies were with the losing side.

Both state and federal judges, when presented with allegation of election fraud, dismissed cases when no actual evidence was offered.

When asked to help present allegations of election fraud in court, some law firms withdrew their services when they realized their clients had no acceptable evidence of election fraud.

It appears that the president-elect, having won enough electoral college votes, will be inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2021, just as was the case both in 2016 and going back more than two centuries.

The right of U.S. citizens to chose their leaders by vote has been defended and upheld.

Fortunately, Bernie, life is moving on without you.

About that article whose excerpts were posted here earlier, a former Reagan, Bush 1, Bush 2 official....no doubt a "rino", writes: "a remarkable piece of journalism. It chronicles Mr. Trump's descent into madness. America is fortunate to have survived this man -- so broken and tortured, so damaged and dangerous, so cruel and detached from reality."

When we listen to news shows or read newspapers, etc, it is very important to activate our brain cells and filter the information. I Know CNN in against Trump. That doesn’t mean much because I’m against Trump and I’m not a cable news network. However, is what I’m hearing from them believable or, even better, are there other sources I can research to check the validity of the news I’m hearing. On the other hand, recently watched for about 20 seconds, an interview on Fox of Ken Starr. (I wonder when his moral compass went off the rails?) Nevertheless, there he was babbling on about the future success of Trump’s court fillings for his imaginary fraud. I don’t have to fact check his absurd statements. 35 courts: State, Federal, Appeals, Republican Judges, Democratic Judges, Conservatives, liberal, and everyone in between have done it for me. When CNN says that President-Elect Biden will be our 46Th President, I believe them because lots of sources have said There Is No Fraud. Courts have said it, Governors both Republican and Democrat have said it., Secretary of States both Republican and Democrat have said it. Hard working election officials both Republican and Democrat have said it, and I will say it again: There isn’t, never was any fraud. It is nothing more than the desperate acts of a humiliated man/child with with a very bruised ego who loves attention. Unfortunately, he has drug his poor followers into his lies.

So hard to imagine how a president whose approval rating never rose above 49% could lose re-election after being impeached and mishandling a pandemic that's cost a quarter million American lives, while unemployment rate's higher than when he took office. Just a total mystery. Empty-headed, fair skinned American bigots have to be the saddest people alive.

Spook, I admire your effort but would suggest you give it up. Even Winston Churchill said that “fanatics are people who cannot change their minds and will not change the subject”. Someone else added they won’t change it because they have no other subject. Trump’s followers will believe Every. Single. Lie that spews out of Trump’s mouth regardless. The fact is Trump believes his followers (fans) are morons and they have been duped. Trump is a con man and these poor people have been completely conned.

Bernie Mac

Today we are living in a perpetual state of gaslighting. The reality that we are being told by the media is at complete odds with what we are seeing with our own two eyes. And when we question the false reality that we are being presented, or we claim that what we see is that actual reality, we are vilified as racist or bigots or just plain crazy. You’re not racist. You’re not crazy. You’re being gaslighted.

Spock Here

From a "socialist gaslighting commie newspaper" lol...."With his denial of the outcome, despite a string of courtroom defeats, Trump endangered America’s democracy, threatened to undermine national security and public health, and duped millions of his supporters into believing, perhaps permanently, that Biden was elected illegitimately."

“It was like a rumor Whac-A-Mole,” said Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Despite being a Republican who voted for Trump, Raffensperger said he refused repeated attempts by Trump allies to get him to cross ethical lines. “I don’t think I had a choice. My job is to follow the law. We’re not going to get pushed off the needle on doing that. Integrity still matters.”

"All the while, Trump largely abdicated the responsibilities of the job he was fighting so hard to keep, chief among them managing the coronavirus pandemic as the numbers of infections and deaths soared across the country. In an ironic twist, the Trump adviser tapped to coordinate the post-election legal and communications campaign, David Bossie, tested positive for the virus a few days into his assignment and was sidelined."

Spock Here

"In the days after the election, as Trump scrambled for an escape hatch from reality, the president largely ignored his campaign staff and the professional lawyers who had guided him through the Russia investigation and the impeachment trial, as well as the army of attorneys who stood ready to file legitimate court challenges."

Instead, Trump empowered loyalists who were willing to tell him what he wanted to hear — that he would have won in a landslide had the election not been rigged and stolen — and then to sacrifice their reputations by waging a campaign in courtrooms and in the media to convince the public of that delusion."

Spock Here

"The effort culminated Nov. 19, when lawyers Rudolph W. Giuliani, Jenna Ellis and Sidney Powell spoke on the president’s behalf at the headquarters of the Republican National Committee to allege a far-reaching and coordinated plot to steal the election for Biden. They argued that Democratic leaders rigged the vote in a number of majority-Black cities, and that voting machines were tampered with by communist forces in Venezuela at the direction of Hugo Chávez, the Venezuelan leader who died seven years ago."

"The Venezuelan tale was too fantastical even for Trump, a man predisposed to conspiracy theories who for years has feverishly spread fiction. Advisers described the president as unsure about the latest gambit — made worse by the fact that what looked like black hair dye mixed with sweat had formed a trail dripping down both sides of Giuliani’s face during the news conference. Trump thought the presentation made him “look like a joke,” according to one campaign official who discussed it with him."

Spock Here

“I, like everyone else, have yet to see any evidence of it, but it’s a thriller — you’ve got Chávez, seven years after his death, orchestrating this international conspiracy that politicians in both parties are funding,” a Republican official said facetiously. “It’s an insane story.”

"Aides said the president was especially disappointed in Powell when Tucker Carlson, host of Fox News’s most-watched program, assailed her credibility on the air after she declined to provide any evidence to support her fraud claims."

"Trump pushed Powell out. And, after days of prodding by advisers, he agreed to permit the General Services Administration to formally initiate the Biden transition — a procedural step that amounted to a surrender. Aides said this was the closest Trump would probably come to conceding the election."

Spock Here

"A simple and clear refutation of the president came Friday from a Trump appointee, when Judge Stephanos Bibas of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit wrote a unanimous opinion rejecting the president’s request for an emergency injunction to overturn the certification of Pennsylvania’s election results."

“Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy,” Bibas wrote. “Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here.”

Blackhorsegirl

😔I’m sorry you’re unable to see anything truthful in your frenzy to believe in Trump but it is not my job to teach you these truths. Believe what you like but there is one truth: Trump lost the election and, fortunately, will stay lost. We will now see experienced adults in the room and not bafoonish con men (and women) and, worse, children. Mr. Mac, in 4 years (or 2 for mid terms) take up the fight again. That’s how a democracy works.

Bernie Mac

You are incapable of posting a comment that does not contain lies. The election is not over. And you lunatic Democrats never accepted the election results of 2016. Stop lying!

Blackhorsegirl

Mac, you rambled on about who? Someone in the State Department?? As with all the information you’re spewing, you’re wrong Again.

Oops, you got the loser buzzer. Now, you could be taking about Chris Krebs who is a Trump appointee assigned to be in charge of the entire department of cyber security in the Department of Homeland Security. Mr. Krebs is honest, and decent, and a patriot. Knowing he would lose his job he stood before the American people and said these elections are the most secure and safe in our history. He said it because it was true and it was his job to make them safe and secure and he did,

Of course he was fired by sniveling, cowardly Trump by a Tweet. A Tweet! How disgusting is that. Trump couldn’t even look the man in the eye. Then again Trump is not worthy to look a real man in the eye.

So now, besides sociopath, narcissist, pathological liar, racist, and sexual predator, we can add coward to Trump’s resume. Trump has brought “crybabyism” to a new and very low level.

Bernie Mac

Like I said. You are a Democrat tool.

Bernie Mac

Krebs did a lousy job, lied about it and deserved to be fired. You will believe anything negative said about Trump because you are a tool. An easily duped useful idiot. A non-thinking waste of oxygen. A bacteria on America.

It apparently does not matter just how much evidence of voter fraud and election tampering is produced, the brain-dead zombies in the Democratic Party will not accept anything that contradicts the directives handed down by their media leaders. Yet these same zombies will swallow anything said by a single low level anonymous State Department flunky. They eat it up like a starving stray mutt gobbles up a pool of vomit in the alley behind a dive bar in the seediest part of town. I will no longer ask if all Democrats are liars and hypocrites. The question has been answered. There are none. There is no way to be a Democrat and still retain any semblance of honor and integrity.

Actually, Spock, I don’t think Doc Samson has a sense of humor. I thought the Barney Fife reference was pretty funny. 😂. Trump is becoming certifiably delusional. It appears He will decide if President-Elect Biden is president (Biden has to recount all 80 million of his votes and prove everyone of them is legitimate) and if He will leave the White House. Good thing we are a country of laws and not dictators. I pray every day to my Lord Jesus Christ to save our country from this dangerous nut case.

His appointed judges are not helping DT out at all! They’re actually following the Law!

What kind of world is this idiot living in where he expects Judges roll over just because he appointed them? As the Trump appointedjudge said today: 'Calling an election unfair does not make it so' It appears judges are asking for evidence, who da thunk? Cultists used to believe in evidence and science when a blue dress was involved....

Blackhorsegirl

😀. Biden won. Trump lost. Be an adult and get on with your life. You know, it could have easily gone the other way. When you lose an election you move on and live to fight another day.

Blackhorsegirl

Well, Doc, Bernie Mac, and the rest of Trump Fraud supporters, where is the legitimate proof that will hold up in court? Far right websites and the alleged observations of Barney Fife who couldn’t bother to attend appropriate training but is absolutely sure millions of Trump ballots were hauled off to the trash dump assuming he wore his glasses 🤓 just haven’t carried the day before a judges (actually, lots of judges).

Doc Samson

Translation - Fraud only occurs when a Repub/conservative wins an election. Your definition of "far right" is done from the far Left and is historically inaccurate. But please, don't let that change you being you, i.e. broad generalizations and condescending exaggerations while not actually addressing the presenting issue. Well done, Leftist, well done. 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

Spock Here

To clarify, What will JUDGES in court accept. Not CNN, not fox, not a leftie, not a rightie, but a judge. The "presenting issue" is that the courts are ruling that no evidence has been presented.. It doesn't matter what I say, Rudy says, or you say. Courts. c o u r t s. Nobody seems to answer that point, why?

Bernie Mac

I have noticed a pattern. You have the same childish demeanor as your comrades - Spock, Nuri, john brown, shinyhappy, etc.... I'm thinking this is what attracts you to the Democratic Party.

Blackhorsegirl

Doc, you really don’t need to show us the evidence. You need to show that evidence in a legitimate court of law. Instead, what your Republican law team did was basically say, ”We think there is fraud. We have no proof but-(fill in name of state, county, city)-needs to prove there was no fraud. We need everyone who voted Democratic to prove their ballot was legitimate. We need Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Bugs Bunny, and Tinker Bell to submit affidavits that they did not stuff Trump ballots behind radiators”. And you wonder why decent judges (Republican, Democrat, liberal, conservative) threw them out of court? Without evidence that is properly submitted in court, why do you continue these lies and pushing conspiracies that are lies. Fantasy does not become fact just because you wish it so. Perhaps you should confer with Tinker Bell 🧚‍♂️

Spock Here

The courts, legislators, congresspeople, senators, former republican officials in the intelligence community, military, justice department, even "trump friendly" currently or in the past, who speak out, disagree, or call out the administration are all Rinos. Narcissism and paranoia, coupled with ignorance and fear for the future of their "white America" is really what is going on now. The rule of law hasn't mattered to these people since Bush/Cheney, maybe before that. They come up with off the wall konspiracy krap because that's all there is. Who needs courts? Let em all, including the Jim Jones in the WH, keep raging away, and poof to their senate hopes in GA. I mean, you would think that would matter to them...salvage something. Weird. Nothing like continuing to turn off voters, especially when they see blacks were allowed to vote this time. I expect Benghazi and Seth Rich to be resurrected any day now

Let’s settle this: Show real evidence. Evidence that could be taken to a federal judge and not be laughed out of court. You can’t because there isn’t any. Normal elections are made up of honest American using their right to vote and elect the candidate of choice. There will be some computer glitches. There will be some human error. That is normal and not fraud. That is a computer glitch and human error.

I truly feel bad for Trump’s follower. They have been swept up in a void of lies from a screaming small and petty man-child with a badly bruised ego. Behind closed doors, Trumps has been known to say his base, Evangelicals, Catholics, and other religions right-the people who elected him are basically morons. He doesn’t respect you. He just wants your money most of which is going to pay his debts and support his goals after January 20th. Since you would never support Biden, at least look for other Republican candidates who are decent, honest, and honor the pledge they made to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. Good luck with that.

Spock Here

Repeating the lie does work, because it disorients the victim. We are not used to the idea of constant lying. Politicians and people lie sometimes, even a lot, not all the time like Trump.

Doc Samson

"Let’s settle this: Show real evidence."

Oh, please. Any "real evidence" is easily found by anyone capable of discerning the difference between a REAL news story vs. a DNC-approved one. Your dumpster fire of "sources" is just that... and I'm sure you'd feel the same about mine. So, irreconcilable differences are... irreconcilable.

Enjoy the upcoming "RESET"! I'm sure you'll be very proud to "own the economy"... unless, just like with Obama, every downturn somehow managed to be Bush's fault... Your boy, Spock, is already blaming Trump... [rolleyes][lol]

soulmates

If your only news is from mainstream media i.e. CNN etc. than you will hear nothing of evidence and affidavits from eye witnesses along with data experts. That is what the Democrats want all of their people to be closed minded and not seek the truth. They believe that the end justify the means to heck with our country looking to the rest of the world as a banana republic. Democrats do not care about the country or its citizens just themselves and the idea that socialism will be good for the country since it has worked so well everywhere else. I have lived in Canada and England which is socialism at its best and it doesn't work there either. Doctors leave Canada as soon as possible and if your a patient than take a number and wait. In England they have to fly people over to Germany and France for critical surgeries before they die. You get what you pay for which include medical services! They don't work for God and country they work for money like most of us.

But it said he was "consistently met with vague responses, platitudes, and empty promises of follow-up that never occurred." The lawsuit accuses True the Vote of beach of contract, and also "conversion," a legal concept linked to the misuse of someone else's property. It said he asked for a refund, at which point True the Vote offered to return $1 million so long as he did not sue them."

On Monday Pennsylvania certified the vote, meaning that the process is concluded. Mr Biden won the state by 80,555 votes." Independent UK

Because I’ve seen no data doesn’t mean it’s not there. Do you reporting of Democrat observers screaming at or barging into the space of poll workers? Behaving so poorly that they must be escorted from the building by a law enforcement officer? Acting too arrogant to get the necessary training to be an affective observer? Oh, that’s right, it wasn’t the truth that was desired but only to continue the lies of Trump who wishes to overturn a safe and fair election that he lost by 6 million Americans. Are there any Democrat observers who gave questionable testimony and affidavits that were basically laughed out of court? If there were, they’d have been all over Fox News and other far right news sources. They weren’t there because they didn’t happen. Were all Democrat observers perfect and all Republican observers evil? Of course not, but the purpose of some Republican observers was to disrupt.

Without going line by line, we can say there were-gasp-computer glitches. Fortunately, they were fixed like any computer glitch would be fixed. We had-wait for it-human error. That is so shocking I need to lie down and put a cold cloth on my head. As for observers: As usual, the issue was with Republicans. They were rude, screamed at poll workers, pushed into the personal space of poll workers, forced their way in to an area where they were not allowed as each party is allowed only so many observers. They didn’t even bother to go to the training sessions so their screaming and screeching was because they didn’t know what they were looking at. Deputy Sheriffs had to escort many poorly behaving Republican observers out of buildings. Republicans banging on windows harassing poll workers to the point where officials had to block windows to protect the personal information of all voters both Republican and Democrat. So called incriminating evidence that Kailey McEnaney waved around was thrown out of court as not credible. For all we know, her stack of “evidence” was simply banana bread 🍞 recipes off the Food Network.

To close this unfortunate conversation up, this is a case of Republicans behaving badly. Believe me, I’ve looked for bad behavior of the Democrat observers and I haven’t found it. I will confess, I only check credible sources and they may save me from wild, unproven, and outright dishonest conspiracies. The behavior of Republicans at all levels has been dismal at best. There were, also, many who were honest, trustworthy, and did their job. I applaud the later. As for the former, I’d like to think you would feel shame at your poor behavior but your example comes from the top and there we have arrogance, immaturity, and a general lack of any moral compass. No wonder 80 million people voted him out.

What a wonderful example of willful stupidity. Talk about old and boring... [rolleyes] [lol]

Mr. Mac, you are just too easy to bait. I’ve entered my 8th decade. Do you really think name calling will affect me. Unfortunately, you only have an example from the top. Trump is accustomed to having his own way all his life. As president, he didn’t always get it and he had people who told him he was wrong. What does he do? He resorts to viscous name calling because that’s all he’s capable of.

Mac, I would think your mother would be unhappy with you because rational adults use positive dialogue even if they disagree and don’t lower themselves to name calling. Grow up even if your soon to be ex president can’t.

It is very disturbing that Democrats don't care one iota about voter fraud, election tampering or election integrity. They don't care if half of the country believes that the Biden/Harris campaign cheated. All these selfish Democrats care about is power. And the hypocrisy of the Democrats to suggest that we all move on. These Democrats have absolutely no self awareness. They have suddenly forgotten all of their whining and complaining of the last four years. Like Biden, they have dementia

@Bernie - This the modern Left, my friend. Utterly devoid of morals, the ends justifies the means, double standards all day long. The nice thing is that they can get away with it time after time. It's good to be a Democrat... [rolleyes]

December's Scientific American has an interesting article by academic researchers from Indiana University at Bloomington and the University of Warwick in England. Professors Menczer and Hills have published an evidence based account on how easily bias can be manipulated within the Internet. Surfers seeking confirmation of their own views are mostly persuaded by friends and acquaintances, not facts. Robotic impersonators propagate low quality information successfully when infiltration exceeds only 1% of available replies; these bots may commonly comprise up to 15% of Twitter traffic. Negative retweets propagate faster than positive ones, accentuating the exploitation of impressionable viewers. An analysis of 15,000 Twitter users demonstrates conclusively that conservatives are more vulnerable to fake news than more liberal users. Most disturbing, however, was the discovery that one source of inauthentic tweets simultaneously promulgating both conservative and progressive ideas was traced to a single mysterious agent of origin--with the apparent goal not of supporting MAGA conservatives or Biden progressives, but rather deliberately adding fuel to the already highly polarized societal debate. Citizens must learn how to protect their freedoms while avoiding blatant manipulation and exploitation on the Internet.

So glad you are sharing this valuable information. Thank you.

None of this is verified or true. But, do continue. It's your right to complain.

He’s, Mr. Mac, it was a joke. P,ease, please, please move on. For 250 years, this nations has elections. Someone wins and someone loses. What we haven’t had until now is a spoiled, whining, tantrum throwing man-child with an oversized, and obviously bruised, ego. Trump lost the election (Thank you, Jesus). Keep repeating that because in 56 days he will be gone. And we don’t even care if he concedes or not. He’s still gone.😘

Are all Democrats liars and hypocrites?

Blackhorsegirl

Why engage these people. Let them wallow in their conspiracies. I would like to raise a glass 🥃 to all the hard working poll workers, Secretary of States, election officials from both parties who did their job. They were good honest public servants.

Ok, I will admit I did find some fraud: One man in Pennsylvania who, by the way, is a Republican, tried to forge his dead mother’s name on a mail in ballot. There it is. I doubt that will affect the millions of votes nationwide that took Biden to victory. Oh, that’s right, some dead South American did it.😂

Bernie Mac

You're a joke.

"More evidence that the Democrats attempted to steal this election"?? Perhaps Tinker Bell can be saved by the collective wishes of the children in the audience, but the whole idea that the election was stolen is permanently stranded on a sandbar of reality. What would a stolen election look like? Perhaps a dozen members of a political party conspired to alter ballots or otherwise misrepresent voters? Who? Where? On what EVIDENCE?? Even a cursory look at the election antics show Republicans trying to exclude ballots that were "folded" (!) or signed in a different color ink(!!). Nearly every Republican lawsuit has now been dismissed, some by Republican judges (!!!). It's time for Bernie Mac and his fellow rabid hallucinators to return to the real world. As you put it, Bernie "Everybody knows it".

Bernie Mac

There is far more evidence that the Democrats attempted to steal this election than there ever was of Trump-Russian collusion. By a country mile. But don't ever expect the truth to interfere with Democrats spewing lies. Democrats have been engaged in election tampering ever since we freed their slaves.

Bryan.the.Nuri

Really? Where is this preponderance of evidence? oh, wait... That evidence, under scrutiny, falls apart.

Integrity, Goat Boy. Learn it, know it, live it.

Bernie Mac

The Democrats engaged in a massive amount of election fraud. Everybody knows it. Dems are lying about it. Are all Democrats liars and hypocrites? Appears so.

Hey doofus, your Russian collusion lie fell apart a long time ago.

Mrea

Are you widening the chasm again, you little rascal!

hagansan

"Your Russian collusion lie fell apart a long time ago." Not exactly. The collusion indictment may have fallen short, but it did NOT fall apart. Here's what we know: Time magazine reports that 17 campaign officials had over 100 contacts with Russian officials, going back to 2015 with discussions for a Trump tower in Moscow which The Donald brazenly denied throughout the entire campaign. In January 2016 Trump officials and Don Jr. received emails offering assistance from Russian tycoon Konstantin Sidorkov, numerous other offers followed and in the spring of 2016 Paul Manafort shared polling data with Konstantin Kilimnik. In April Jeff Sessions and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner met with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak and Trump was briefly introduced to the ambassador as well; Session lied to the FBI resulting in his consequent recusal. In June Trump Jr., Kushner and Manafort met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and others at Trump Tower and last summer Carter Page travelled to Moscow while Manafort sought to appease Konstatin Kilimnik, to whom he was deeply in debt. The Russian IRA hacked the Democratic Committee and shared voter models with Republicans. Voting machine malfunction in crucial districts suggests the IRA hacked the company that made the machines. The electoral websites of 39 states were probed.

Meanwhile, Tim Snyder, noted authority on fascism reports that Facebook closed 5.8 million accounts in November, 2016. The Russian IRA had 470 Facebook accounts of which six of these had 340 shares each. Over 126 million citizens saw Russian Facebook content, 129 Event pages reached 336,000 readers. There were over 280 Instagram accounts messaged to 5.8 million U.S. citizens.

Trump may have dodged a bullet on the collusion conspiracy, but there's still plenty of smoke in that trash pile.

Bernie Mac

Fact. There is far more evidence that the Democrats attempted to steal this election than there ever was of Trump-Russian collusion.

But let’s not pretend or be mistaken, this happened after almost NO ONE (thank you Mitt Romney for being the exception to the rule) from the Republican congressional side acknowledged the defeat or called out the wreck-less, baseless lies used for weeks to promote this con, nor the attempt to change the way electoral college voters are selected- hence stealing an election and subverting the will of the people. In a democracy. Almost as despicable as attempting to remove millions and millions of Americans from their healthcare plan during a world-wide pandemic with NO ALTERNATIVE plan. We have barely and quite luckily survived the most corrupt and dangerous administration ever known in this country’s history, but we can’t afford to let up, take our eyes off the prize, forget, or forgive. Investigate any and all illegality amongst and around this group of grifters and wanna be authoritarians, as if our lives and democracy depends on it, or they will be back for more by way off Jared/ivanka/jr....and they will be less likely to make the rookie mistakes of the current toddler-in-chief. Zero pardons for traitors!!!

The GOP has become a fringe group that trades in divisive, outlandish conspiracy theories and can no longer be regarded as a serious advocate for this country and constitution. Supported by bigots who cloak themselves in religion to hide their bigotry and advance a narrow agenda. In the words of GW "that was some weird shat"
